to these reports that the white house, the obama administration was cautioning the algerian government on how to respond to this hostage taking and this group of terrorists? >> i think that is probably exactly right. i think the algerians are very experienced people at fighting, and they don't give a lot of time to develop. i think it is probably very crude to say that i think the algerians value that gas production more than the people that were being held hostage. there were very worried about the plan being destroyed. i think that i why they moved right away. >> they were concerned, and i heard it in my debate. the americans and the french could do it. there was a draw fying. special forces moving. they looked very conceed that we would go in and therefore they could not absorb a politically. they went. lou: ignored by washington, european capitalists. >> what i think the algerians understood, knowing what they know about those g how this, if they don't terminate the issue very quickly, there are other cell this is not just for overseas. algeria itself, there were other strikes elsewhere.

of the transition in 2009 between the bush and obama white houses and he handled security at the inauguration. >> if you don't have the ability to rapid reaction, suppression of fire, someone does trying to take out an active shooter, that is when you end up getting higher casualties. so there will be officers scattered throughout the route to provide suppression fire if there is any outbreak along the route. >> reporter: it's important to emphasize it can be ex freelyly fluid. four years ago there was nothing specific but there was an active investigation into intelligence coming out of the al-qaeda affiliate in somalia and allegation they may be sending to suicide bomber to the inauguration but it shows how fluid it can be. >> gregg: thank you very much. inauguration falls on sunday and official swearing in will be a low key affair with a public celebration held off until monday. for just the second time in history the inaugural events fall on the martin luther king holiday. we're told the president will put his hand on a stack of bibles, one of them used by the late civil rights leader, th

. if americans have tempered their expectations for obama's second term which quietly the white house likes, lower expectations, they have soured even more on congress and the republican party's brand. a pitiful 14% approve of the job congress is doing, near an all-time low or high if you will. 81% disapprove of their job. the personal ratings of all four congressional leaders are upside down or under water by double digits. house speaker john boehner's report card is especially bad. his personal rating upside down by 19 points. while the democratic party has a net positive rating the republican party's negative rating of 49% is basically at its -- near the all-time high. only one other time has it ever been higher. it is the all-time high during obama's presidency. just 26% see the party in a positive light. the gop has lost the most ground in this last poll with self-described republicans. the tea party by the way has its lowest rating ever if you will. positive views of the tea party have dropped to just 23%. as the democrats haggle about the best strategy now for pushing gun control mea
it legally easier to coordinate with the white house. but the obama folks are conceding a big point by doing this. whether they're going to ever say it or not that they can't do the things they want to do inside the structure of the democratic party. this version of ofa is successful. we're also told don't be surprised if this becomes obama's personal vehicle post presidency. think of it as sort of a precursor to that similar to president clinton's clinton global initiative. well, if it's friday, we'll get david gregory in here. can the white house leverage the what house apparatus to work in the second term? mr. gregory? good to see you. let's start with what they're doing here, what they promised to do in the first term. their big organization would be used. they still claim it was successful. they say you think health care was hard without ofa it would have been even harder, things like that. but to see what they're going to do and the first test is going to be guns. >> what is striking about the gun proposals is the president has basically thrown a long bomb here to use a football metaph

come out of the senate and from the white house. president obama is going to miss his february 4th deadline to submit his budget. >> i know that's an argument that the republicans like to make, but it's unfair because technically if there was no budget the government would be shut down. we know there's the budget control act and the continuing resolutions. the government has been funded to lower levels than actually the cbo had anticipated if we would have had a budget. so technically the president is actually already signed $2.4 billion -- sorry, trillion in spending in -- towards the debt reduction. two-thirds of which have been in cuts. again, if we'll come to the table and have a real conversation about both deficit reduction and spending cuts, the republicans have got at least to put a real proposal on the table other than okay, we're going to do a temporary or do a month to month to try to hold some of this hostage rather than putting forward serious ideas. >> well -- >> well, i think they have put forward some serious ideas. the ryan budget and the several iterations of it.

house's legislative agenda and a video first lady obama announced the launch of a new group called organizing for action and reached out to supporters of the president to continue their efforts. >> if we want to finish what we started and truly make that change we believe in, we can't stop now. and that's why today i'm proud that our friends and supporters are launching organizing for action. the next phase of our movement for change. >> politico's reid epstein was one of the first to report this. good afternoon. >> good afternoon, tamron. >> give us the breakdown of how this will work and the donors, there will be full disclosure of the donors here. >> full disclosure of donors, unlimited contributions. it will be essentially like a superpac but with more disclosure than some of them had and work towards pushing the president's second term agenda by trying to influence members of congress, pushing obama supporters to call their members of congress to help push what the president wants to do. >> you also in the article anyway bring up the dnc chair and the impact or implication thi

coordinated with the white house. charges by laura ingraham by powell and others played the race card at the behest of president obama. ms. ingraham will be here. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. evil on the internet. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. whether we know it or not all of us are being influenced by the net. the machines have changed everything in our lives. 245 million americans three quarters of the population have access to the net. worldwide 2.4 billion people have net capability. a third of the world's population. and as you know, if you use the internet, there is a tremendous evil available at your finger tips. pedophilia, drug dealing, violence, sayism. even rape can be accessed on sick internet sites. children barraged. games some of them explicitly violent. chat rooms so crude and malevolent it is beyond the pale. millions of people are developing emotional relationships over the net. with descrarntion. people they never even me

talking about how president obama has successfully been neutering republican members of the house. again, from your insiders' perspective, is that you guys talk about in secret meetings? how to neuter those on the right? >> look, i don't think it's possible to neuter the right. so i don't think that's the goal. look, i will say because i want to touch on something you were just talking about. in that this is not -- if i were advising the republicans, i would say this is not about tactics or poll tested talking points. this is about what is your agenda? do you support equal pay for women? do you support comprehensive immigration reform? so it's -- i think within the democratic party, it's hard to understand why they keep having meetings about their tactics when really they need to take a look at how they're not identifying with or relating to the demographics of the country. >> hey, thomas, can i say real quick to jen on that point. you're absolutely right. and if you disagree with the things that jen just outlined there as is part of the republican talking point if you will, tell us why,
within the white house? >> remember bill clinton and what the definition of is, is. with barack obama it's sort of what the definition of negotiation is. they will deal with the debt ceiling, and that's when you will have very active negotiations over the budget. what the house has effectively done is put this on a similar path, a similar timetable as these other negotiations and the president may be able to say look, the debt ceiling is going to have to be raised regardless but house members can say well that's fine, but this is what we're demanding in terms of cuts. so maybe they are not linked except for the calendar, but at least in the minds of the republicans they certainly are linked. >> michael: yeah, i couldn't agree with that more. and that's a really great take on it. one of the other things that came out of this was that eric cantor said there was one part of the debt limit increase is is this . . . that's great messages and we'll get to that in a second but the 2 #th amendment says you can't alter pay until the new congress comes in. so it might not
consensus. republican house speaker john boehner told newly reelected president obama he wants to see obama succeed. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led -- not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. we want you to lead. not as a liberal or conservative, but as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's rise above the dysfunctions and to the right thing together for our country. >> there you have house speaker john boehner. >> i appreciate the sentiment, but the words at the moment, we will see what kind of truth, what kind of authenticity there is behind those words when the president, now back in washington, sits down with republicans to deal with that word i hate, sequestration. when you start dealing with these cuts on the table -- with said many times, budgets are moral documents. when they get into the weeds about these numbers and about the priorities, we will see how strong sentiment comes through. >> my spontaneous response is i believe those words, and t
posted on the white house youtube channel. >> dear president obama, i think there should be some changes in the law with guns. it's a free country, but i recommend there needs to be a limit with guns. >> and i'm ready to ask you to start gun laws. i am very sad about the children who lost their lives in connecticut, so i thought i would write to you to stop gun violence. >> mr. president, can we do something which will stop all of these terrible problems? after watching the news all day on friday, one question pops in my head and that question is, can we stop using guns? >> the obama administration has come under fire for incorporating the children into that news conference. some conservatives say the children are being used as props. >>> and this weekend scores of children, their parents, and others will descend on washington ahead of president obama's inauguration. the chairs are being placed. dress rehearsals are taking place, but if you're headed to d.c., you better bundle up because the forecast calls for flurries on inauguration day. national guardsmen from more than 25 states maki
pennsylvania avenue, the white house. president obama and his family get a rent free deal to live there for the next four years. you could say every american taxpayer owns just a little piece of the white house. felicia taylor, i wanted to talk to you about this. i saw this article in zillow had calculated this morning, just having fun, the white house isn't for sale. in terms of dollars and cents, if someone wanted to buy the white house what do you think it would be worth? >> about a cool $295 million. not such a big price tag. >> please. >> you certainly make enough to afford that, i know. anyway, zillow used public data and recent sales to figure it out. it buys you 50,000 square feet, 132 rooms, and three kitchens because one isn't enough. you got a pool, a movie theater, a bowling alley, that was because of the nixens, they asked for that one, a jogging track, which bill clinton added. the value of the white house got up, though, since obama came into town, up about 7% since 2009 and that does mirror the housing market, which peaked in 2006. and then fell before recovering.

sometime in april or may. that is the strategy from house republicans. president obama says he has not even entertained any type of negotiations. republicans should agree to raise the debt ceiling because having to raise it is the result of appropriations already passed and signed into law. back to you. melissa: thanks so much. ashley: here with reaction to the gop when it peter welch. thank you for joining us. you say, look, republicans are making it an "economic weapon of mass distraction." do they get is a continuation of that? >> it is actually progress for the republican confidence, but it is not progress for the country. that tack tick is not one that they can hold onto because they know it will plunge this country into a deeper recession. they have been -- it is a way to say they are avoiding. ashley: it really is not addressing the issue, though, what will it take to get that in place. i know that you, of course, have been leading the charge to have the president to prevent the country from defaulting. >> it is not an acceptable option to plunge america into default. the republicans
